Building partnerships that advance our technology and its applications.

COVID-19 Partners

To date, SONA is pleased to announce three partners in their fight against COVID-19; Cytiva, The Native Antigen Company and Bond Digital Health.

Cytiva (Formerly GE Healthcare Life Sciences) supports therapy innovators, researchers and healthcare providers accelerate how precision diagnostics and therapies are invented, produced and used. Sona and Cytiva will jointly complete test development of the Sona Covid-19 Coronavirus rapid response lateral flow test. Sona will use Cytiva’s Fast Flow High Performance Membrane (FFHP) in production of the test.

Native Antigen Company is a leading supplier of native and recombinant antigens for emerging and endemic infectious diseases. It is one of the first recognised suppliers to release biological materials for use in diagnostic tests specific to Covid-19. Native will supply its Covid-19 biological materials to Sona for use in its rapid screening test.

Bond Digital Health offers the only known proprietary digital data capture and analysis system designed specifically for lateral flow devices. Bond’s data platform offers industry leading data security and is fully compliant with all relevant regulations. Bond will add data capture and analysis to Sona’s test, which will allow test result data to be collected through either a reader system or mobile app before being securely stored using cloud technology. Through this platform data can be accessed and analysed, ultimately allowing authorities to monitor the spread of the outbreak in real time. Sona is currently in discussions with potential partners for validation testing, product manufacture and distribution.

Industry comments about our gold nanorod technology

Gold nanorods that have been synthesized and stabilized without CTAB are obviously a safer alternative. The fact that such a particle is commercially available today is astonishing. This could be a very important step forward for a number of promising clinical methods.

Gold nanorod pioneer, professor of chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Illinois

Sona’s unique gold nanotechnology is very impressive and has the potential to transform lateral flow. We are proud to partner with such an innovative company and we know that together Sona and Bond can achieve great things.

Phil Groom

Commercial Director, Bond Digital Health

Hydrosense and Sona are the perfect fit; with our innovative and reliable solutions and Sona’s unique gold nanorods, I am certain we can develop something special together.
